Carey Clouse is an Associate Professor in Architecture and Landscape Architecture. She holds a post-professional degree (SMArchS) in Architecture and Urbanism from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a BArch from the University of Oregon. 

Clouse is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship and the Rose Architectural Fellowship. Clouse teaches courses that address the overlap between social justice, environmental stewardship, and urbanism. In an effort to bolster interdisciplinary research and learning at UMass, she teaches in both the architecture department and the landscape architecture regional planning department (LARP), and cross-lists many of her classes. In addition to teaching, she is co-partner of Crookedworks, an architecture-design-build firm.
